A brand new behind-the-scenes featurette has been released to coincide with the return of Game Of Thrones to our screens next month. Season 5 of the award-winning HBO fantasy series is arguably the most anticipated premiere of the television year.

This action-packed reel, dropped to the official Game Of Thrones YouTube, sizzles with a ton of new looks at the stunts behind the series. In addition to shedding a light on the intricacies of choreographing those labor-intensive fights, there are several new chunks of footage previously unseen.

After all that sword-throwing, kicking and punching, who will survive the next ten episodes of Game Of Thrones? Tune in to HBO on Sunday April 12 to find out.

Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is struggling to balance the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of the newly arrived Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei (Lena Headey) scrambles to hold on to power in King’s Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) embarks on a secret mission. Across the Narrow Sea, Arya (Maisie Williams) seeks an old friend and a fugitive Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) finds a new cause.  And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires hard sacrifices.
